Teenage Armpits | Dente Complete Dentistry

Teenage Armpits

As a kid, whatever toiletries my mom bought I used.

I never worried about the kind of soap, shampoo, toothpaste, or deodorant that I used.

In fifth grade, our school did a week long overnight sleepover. This was the first time that I ever slept overnight anywhere else, other than my parents or grandparents home.

My mom got my bag ready with all of my clothes and all of my toiletries. At this age, I was beginning to have the armpit musk and started using deodorant.

I took out my huge blue spray canister of Secret Deodorant. The tagline for Secret was “Strong enough for a man but made for a woman.”

I remember the second I took out the spray canister, my friends began teasing me that this deodorant was for girls.

I was so embarrassed and did not wear any deodorant for the remainder of the sleepover.

When I got home, I complained to my mom that she was buying me “girl” deodorant and I wanted “boy” deodorant. My mom was so confused because she didn’t understand what was the big deal. I still have tendencies of wanting to being accepted. For a long time I had crooked teeth and did not get my teeth straightened because I worried of what other people would think about wearing braces as an adult.

I do this more times than I’d like to admit. As an adult, I would like to say that no one’s opinion affects any of my decisions, but that would be very disingenuous.

When I finally got my braces on, at the age of 37, I expected it to be a lot worse. I thought the process was going to be brutal. I thought I was going to feel weird with braces as an adult.

The reality is that it was not bad and the end result was AWESOME.

If you want to improve your smile and are concerned that you’re “too old” to do it, think again. We get patients of all ages and all of them are happy at the end.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Any Deodorant Works For Me” Couret





World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
